Fiftieth RTCA SC-224 Standards for Airport Security Access Control Systems Plenary
Document Number: 2017-12854
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of Fiftieth RTCA SC-224 Standards for Airport Security Access Control Systems Plenary.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12803
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports that operation of fuselage doors was interrupted due to corrosion in certain door roller bearings. This proposed AD would require a one-time detailed inspection of the bearings for corrosion, and replacement if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12798
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), Model CL-600- 2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900), and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a number of rubber bull gear (RBG) wheels installed in the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA) were manufactured using an incorrect material specification. This proposed AD would require replacement of the affected RBG wheels. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12794
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model 340A (SAAB/SF340A) and SAAB 340B airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the determination that new inspection tasks for the drag brace support fitting of the main landing gear (MLG) and corrosion prevention and control program (CPCP) related tasks are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate airworthiness limitations, including new inspection tasks for the drag brace support fitting of the MLG and to implement CPCP related tasks. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Modification of VOR Federal Airways V-55, V-63, V-177, V-228, and V-246 in the Vicinity of Stevens Point, WI
Document Number: 2017-12716
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies five VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways in the vicinity of Stevens Point, WI. The FAA is taking this action due to the planned decommissioning of the Stevens Point, WI (STE), VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID) which provides navigation guidance for portions of the ATS routes amended by this action. This action will enhance the safe and efficient management of aircraft in the Stevens Point, WI, area.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Defense and Space S.A. (Formerly Known as Construcciones Aeronauticas, S.A.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12630
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposal for all Airbus Defense and Space S.A. Model CN-235, CN-235-100, CN-235-200, and CN-235-300 airplanes; and Model C-295 airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by reducing a certain compliance time, adding repetitive inspections and operational checks of the affected fuel valves, and providing corrective action if necessary. We are proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions impose an additional burden over those proposed in the NPRM we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
